When i attached my USB device, initially it's being recognized, but later my computer shows no space in the device -- even if it is has empty space. When I release it and attach it again my computer shows "unrecognized device". Can anyone help me fix this problem?

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

If you go into Computer Management, Disk Management, does it show the USB device there? Is the Drive Letter that is listed there the same as one of your mapped drive letters? That could be an issue, just right click it in the Disk Management and change Drive letter and it will work again if this is the case.

It could also be a driver issue, what OS are you running and what kind of USB, make sure that you do not need drivers for that OS if you do install them and it should work.

Hope this helps.
